Good Morning, Dear Friends and Prayer Partners! This is the day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it! Sounds like a broken record, but once again, we have sun, wind and very warm weather. I received several text messages from Daryl last night about the tornado warnings they had received. The bad weather was headed for Chattanooga, which is just a few miles from Cleveland, TN. Thank God, they were spared. I prayed for God to change the direction of the storm. No damage to Daryl's house! Looks like more bad weather is forecast for the central states today. So strange...
My yard men came yesterday and blew off the porch, but already the wind has deposited dry leaves on it. Sigh. Can't win. I got one thing accomplished yesterday that I had been putting off. One was doing my ironing, which only took about fifteen minutes, but since it is one of my least favorite things to do, I keep putting it off. I also returned six books to the library, and finished reading another, so I have to return it today and load up again. I never get tired of reading!
I also stopped in at the park and noticed very few people there. It was pretty warm, and even though there is a lot of shade, it is hot to walk. On my way out, I saw a very large, wet turtle that had just climbed out of the water on the bank by the weir. Guess he wanted to dry off! God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
Can anything ever separate us from Christ's love?
Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have
trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or are
hungry or cold or in danger or threatened with
death?( Even the scriptures say, "For your sake,
we are killed every day; we are being slaughtered
like sheep.") No, despite all these things , over
whelming victory is ours through Christ who loved us.
And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us
from his love. Death can't and life can't. The angels
can't and the demons can't. Our fears for today , our
worries about tomorrow, and even the powers of hell
can't keep God's love away. Whether we are high above
the sky or in the deepest ocean , nothing in all creation
will ever be able to separate us from the love of God,
that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving,
joy and love!
Love and hugs,
